Start your custom "Tornado" project by clicking the button next to your favorite "Tornado" title below...

Tornado / Whirlwind

China xuàn fēng
Japan tsumujikaze
ribbon top
<mark>Tornado</mark> / Whirlwind

This is tornado or whirlwind in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

Awesome / Awe-Inspiring

Japan osore ooi
ribbon top
Awesome / Awe-Inspiring

This is a Japanese word for something awe-inspiring or awesome (in some odd context, it can refer to the month of August). This is probably not appropriate for a calligraphy wall scroll unless you have a specific reason.

The word awesome is misused a lot in English, or used too casually. This Japanese word is the real form of awesome, and kind of means numerous fears and anxiety that you would feel in response to encountering something truly awesome (such as God, a tornado, a tsunami, etc).

Hurricane / Typhoon

China tái fēng
Japan tai fuu
ribbon top
Hurricane / Typhoon

This is the most common way to write hurricane or typhoon in Chinese, old Korean Hanja and Japanese Kanji. Sometimes used to refer to a big tornado as well.

The first character alone also means typhoon, but the second character means wind, and acts to emphasize the meaning.

Note: Sometimes the first character is written in the form shown to the right.

Hurricane / Typhoon

China jù fēng
Japan gufuu
ribbon top
Hurricane / Typhoon

This is the second more common way to write hurricane or typhoon in Chinese and Japanese Kanji. Sometimes used to refer to a big tornado as well.

The first character alone also means hurricane, but the second character means wind, and acts to emphasize the meaning.

Buy custom calligraphy wall scroll

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
